smokin’? December 1, 2009 After tea at Starbucks with a family friend, we walk over to Friday’s for dinner. We’re standing outside waiting to be seated. Maitre d’: Smoking or non-smoking? Me: Non. Skye (my 13 year old): Why do they always ask ‘smoking or non-smoking’? When they see kids, shouldn’t they instantly think non-smoking 😯 ?

Smart girl. Following you now from MBC. Sarah C. December 2, 2009 at 7:16 pm It’s so true! It’s so weird (for me) to even think of restaurants with smoking sections – all the restaurants in my area are now designated non-smoking. Following you from MBC! clairity December 2, 2009 at 8:01 pm @Buckeroomama Thanks for stopping by. @Sarah C Thanks for stopping by. I tried to leave a comment on your blog but there’s no option for name/URL. Richele December 3, 2009 at 8:17 am You have one smart teenager! Sadly, too many parents smoke around their little ones. My father in law thought nothing of smoking around a baby. He tried it once with my baby and I put a stop to it. However, he was offended..HE was a offended..and didn’t talk to us for awhile. I didn’t miss him. LOL. mommy to chumsy December 3, 2009 at 3:25 pm hahahhahaa…she’s smart. Sadly, some ppl just continue to smoke eventhough there are kids with them 🙁 kristin December 3, 2009 at 3:27 pm I know – you’d think it would be obvious! Obvious to everyone but the ‘smoking’ parents out there . . . What a fun place, can’t wait to return! Kristin Joey December 3, 2009 at 11:20 pm Sadly no – I see moms carrying an infant in one hand and a cigarette in the other. I’d like to slap them. Here in Pennsylvania we have the smoking ban in almost all restaurants. I love it! I found your blog on MBC. clairity December 4, 2009 at 1:32 pm @all the moms from MBC Thanks for stopping by 😉 Great to have you guys. Brandy December 5, 2009 at 8:32 am My DD would have said the same thing. I always tell her, “well some people do smoke around their children and it’s not my place to tell them it’s wrong just because I don’t believe in smoking around my children & filling their lungs with second hand smoke”… I think in NH now there are no more “smoking or non-smoking” sections but I could be wrong, been so long since I’ve been out to eat and I sit in non-smoking no matter what so I probably wouldn’t even notice.
